3fourths (8637) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Draft at the brewery in SLC. Dark orange and clear color with a large white head. Nose is sweet bananas and bubble gum with some artificial sugar and candy notes as well. Light and crisp, a bit of a sweet yeast bite present. Some bubble gum and soap with the banana flavor... watermelon and peaches as well. Artificially sweet and cloying. Unbalanced sweetness but still a commendable effort for keeping it at 4% ABV.

Bottle. Lightly hazy blonde, estery yeasty aroma, a little sweaty. Rustic yeast guides the palate, sweet pale grains, a little marzipan. Not bad.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Public House in the Venetian. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, apples, grapes, apricot, candi sugar, grass, and straw.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Courtesy of douglas88. A Belgian Pale Ale, eh? Let’s see. It pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma emits cloves, grains, banana, yeast, spice, a touch of grapefruit and coriander. The taste is an even balanced mix of cloves, yeasty spice, banana, sweet tangelo, faint grapefruit, ripe green apples and a light coriander note. Into the finish it dries up a bit while grainy malt notes come to the surface. Well executed and refreshing brew.
